Anybody have any feedback/recommendations on any battery-powered chainsaws they have used?
That's pretty much what we said when we got ours too. It's a beast!I got the Dewalt 20v a month ago. Pretty incredible actually.
A new chain on any saw will loosen up over the first few uses. And “staying tight” is a relative term. Too tight and it won’t turn properly and can overheat the saw; too loose and you get chain slap on the front of the bar and increased potential that it will jump the rails. And the saw will come with an instruction book that will tell you how to properly adjust the chain. In general, loose enough to turn with gloved hand.....but tight enough so that when you pull the chain directly away from the bar the drive bar tangs come about 1/4 of their length out of the groove (for a bar without a nose sprocket, tighter for one with) Or better, google it!!Hopefully the loose chain thing is temp, that's a dangerous thing... I'd wear armor for a while until you're sure it's staying tight
